I am having such a hard time for the last few days more than ever... My anxiety and my depression are up the roof. It is very painful. I registered to a new local doctor and I am now back on meds. So I felt weird today.
I am glad you are back on medication. My anxiety went on for so long I it became clinical and I needed help. I am on a perfect combination. Paxil for anxiety and depression, geodon for my appetite, and seroquel to help me sleep. I take them all at bedtime and they work like a charm. I also have back pain and got off hydrocodone twice a day. I was taking too much and it made me feel high so I take only 30 twice a day. Not too much and not too little. I had to tell the doctor to cut back. He was over medicating me. Many doctors are prescribing too much or too little. Everyone needs something different. The key for addicts is that it be time release and a modest dose. God does not want me to be an addict but he does not want me in pain.
The main reason people don't try medication because they feel weird for the first few day. This high goes away. Stay on the medication at least a week before you decide. You must use trial and error to get the right combination. No one drug does the trick in many cases. This is my two cents anyway.
